5 Things Your Daughters (or you) Need

Parisian Wall Decals-   So cute and so cheap!  I think they would look amazing on a teal wall.

Sparkle Shoes-   Some may call these special occasion shoes.  I call them your everyday shoes.  What wouldnt these look good with?  Sweat pants...but you shouldn't leave the house in those anyway!

Tote for the Kids- This is the perfect summer "schlepping" tote.  The best part is proceeds go to St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital.

Party in Her Tummy-  No explanation needed here. This is so yummy.  Buy it.

Hello Kitties- You can't have too many Hello Kitty charms (just ask Jodie)!  This is little girl size (bummer  I know).  I know a few little girls that would absolutely squeal if they got this in the mail!

Get Creative!

Michael Giocchino's Oscar acceptance speech Sunday night was simply amazing.  If you missed it, check it out below.  Then go rent the movie UP to show your support!

“Thank you, guys. When I was… I was nine and I asked my dad, “Can I have your movie camera? That old, wind-up 8 millimeter camera that was in your drawer?” And he goes, “Sure, take it.” And I took it and I started making movies with it and I started being as creative as I could, and never once in my life did my parents ever say, “What you’re doing is a waste of time.” Never.
And I grew up, I had teachers, I had colleagues, I had people that I worked with all through my life who always told me what you’re doing is not a waste of time. So that was normal to me that it was OK to do that.
I know there are kids out there that don’t have that support system so if you’re out there and you’re listening, listen to me: If you want to be creative, get out there and do it. It’s not a waste of time. Do it. OK? Thank you. Thank you.”
Have a fantastic day!  xoxo Ellie
